Multiply is the government initiative to help adults develop their mathematical ability and understand how these skills can be used in daily life - in the home and at work.

What is the Multiply adult numeracy programme?

Multiply is the government initiative to help adults develop their mathematical ability and understand how these skills can be used in daily life – in the home and at work. By supporting adults with their understanding of how to improve household finances, how to help children with homework and developing skills in specific lines of work (in construction or the health sector for example) the Multiply scheme aims to provide everyone with the skills they need to succeed. With no formal final exam and many short courses to enrol on, learners can tailor their learning to their individual needs. With half of the working population (around 17m people) not holding a C/4 grade in GCSE maths*, there is a need for upskilling, particularly in times of economic hardship.

How can our Multiply courses help you?

We can help provide you with functional numeracy skills in our free courses, both taught online and in person. People who improve their numeracy skills are more likely to be in employment, have higher wages and better wellbeing*. For many parents or caregivers, the lack of mathematical skills can make supporting their children with schoolwork challenging. Our courses are designed to help reduce any anxiety that might be present from previous learning and get you in the right mindset, and equipped with the skills, to support them with their homework.


What is next after Multiply?

Our Multiply courses could be the first steps in building your confidence and knowledge of maths, to not only help you in your personal life, but in your career too. Did you know that many of the learning objectives covered in Multiply are actually within the Level 1 and 2 Functional Skills programmes? Gaining your Level 2 maths Functional Skills qualification can unlock doors to a new job, an apprenticeship or further study. For parents with school-aged children, gaining a Functional Skills qualification in maths (Level 2 is equivalent of a GCSE) can help enormously with supporting them with maths homework, as well as modelling a healthy attitude to life long learning.

Multiply Business Suit

Calling all employers… Do your managers, team leaders or supervisors lack confidence with numbers? Do you have aspiring managers whose numeracy skills are holding them back? Runway Training are offering a series of FREE one-day numeracy boosters, via the Multiply initiative, to develop the confidence and skills of your workforce.

Understanding Budgets

A key competency for managers is the ability to set and manage budgets, but for many this can prove to be a challenging area and often very little support is provided. This course will help candidates understand the fundamentals of how departmental budgets operate and provide hands on practical tasks to put the theory in to practice in a controlled environment.

Introduction to Risk Management

Managing risk is important at all levels, whether you are looking at projects, teams or departments, risk management is a skill that all managers should be able to practice. Through this introductory course you will gain an understanding of how risk registers operate and explore scoring systems as a way of analysing significant risks and how to manage them.

Introduction to Cost Centre

Growing organisations rely on cost centres to ensure full visibility of projects and departments is possible across the organisation. Whilst overall profitability might be positive, the ability to drill down with granular detail can help improve economies of scale and drive efficiencies. This introductory course is ideal for those new to the concept of cost centres looking to build their knowledge in this area.

Preparing for your Future

Knowing the Numbers Retirement can seem a long way off for many, but planning for your future is something that’s never to early to start. This short course will look at pension options, how to calculate your likely pot and rate of return and explore different options open to you including savings and investments.

Commercial Awareness

Today’s business is more demanding than ever and the need for developing commercial awareness is vital to the success of any business. Clarity of mission, vision, strategy and tactics are key commercial aspects and awareness is important to ensure teams are working in synergy. This course will give delegates an understanding of how to develop strategy by taking into consideration both internal and external colleagues, suppliers and business partners.

Time Management

The phrase that ‘there is not enough’ time is one that we frequently hear. The reality is that time is often not being utilised to the best advantage or planned and controlled in an orderly fashion. Managing time means getting more control over how we spend it and there are some straightforward techniques that can be applied. This short course will explore how we can condition our environment, rather than allowing our environment to condition us, and not allow time pressures to build up from the interruptions, questions or demands of others.
